Guest


Professor Andrew Horne (PhD, FRCOG, FRCP Edin, FRCSEd, FRSE)

Andrew is a Professor in Gynaecology and Reproductive Sciences at the University of Edinburgh, President-elect of the World Endometriosis Society and chair of the academic board at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (UK). He established the EXPPECT Centre for Pelvic Pain and Endometriosis in Edinburgh in 2015 and remains the co-director of EXPPECT.


Andrew has a vision that ultimately all medical interventions for women with endometriosis will have an underlying evidence base, demonstrating that their action does more good than harm. In case of uncertainty, he believes that patients must be informed of the evidence gap, and optimally, be offered participation in a clinical trial.
